Vij5 is a Dutch design label with a collection of interior products, characterized by their minimalist aesthetic and functionality. Its founders, Arjan van Raadshooven and Anieke Branderhorst, designed the basis of the product collection and actively seek collaboration with other young designers to expand their collection. The distribution of the finished products is arranged by Arjan and Anieke, after they complete the design and investigate manufacturing possibilities together with the designers. With this they are looking for designs that suit their own signature. Because Arjan and Anieke control all processes of each product from a designer’s perspective, the brand has a very personal style and high standards of quality. Correct proportions and a balanced composition; the use of pure, honest materials; clear lines and fine details is what the designs have in common.
